What’s the best way to go about a section 3 deactivation please?


I am a nee seller, its for restricted items which weren’t restricted when I listed them.

A bit harsh to section 3 over a restricted product violation. We usually get a few restricted product violations and they have little or no impact so Ive not come across this before.

Id seek professional help to get the account back as soon as possible

Where the “Reactivate account” part is, do they ask for some specific documentation? What you’ve sent previously?

Contact them and ask them what exactly they need.

The problem is we don’t know what else is on his account. Maybe there are other violations, maybe there are unread performance notifications, maybe wrong documents submitted previously, etc.etc.
